Walking tours and other specialty tours of Venice

Venice is a complex and complicated city with many layers of history not always readily apparent to the naked eye.

This truly is one city where your experience will be greatly enriched by taking a few walking tours or other specialty tours—by boat, or even an in-depth tour of just a single museum or sight. Honestly it's one of my top favorite things to do in Venice.
